WHS Theatre Company presents:
Woodinville City Limits,
A Virtual One-Act Play Festival


The award-winning Woodinville High School Theatre Company is excited to present its upcoming winter play festival, Woodinville City Limits featuring seven short one-act plays, which you will be able to enjoy online starting February 5 at 7:00 pm. Tickets are available now through February 12 at schoolsales.nsd.org and are $5.00 per household for all 7 plays. Woodinville City Limits will feature works by Tad Mosel, Steve Unckles, and David Ives. Written in the second half of the 20th century, these plays will make for a witty, romantic, absurd, and existentially-minded evening of virtual theatre.

Tad Mosel’s Impromptu examines just how much truth and illusion a person needs to live a balanced life. Content, written by Steve Unckles, is probably best explained in his own words: Unckles and the characters he has written serve as a role model not just for those confused by American definitions of male and female but for all of the confused, everywhere. These plays are joined by the following five one-acts written by David Ives. In Sure Thing, a couple on a first date has the opportunity to reset and try again each time they say the wrong thing. Words, Words, Words takes the “infinite monkey theorem”-- the idea that given enough time, three monkeys in a room could eventually compose any given text, including Shakespeare’s Hamlet -- and turns it into reality. In English Made Simple, a couple named Jack and Jill meet at a party, and as the night progresses, it becomes apparent that the two knew each other and were even involved romantically before this night. During the play, a voice known only as “Loudspeaker Voice”, explains what the couple is really thinking as they talk to each other. In The Philadelphia, a man discovers that he’s entered a strange pocket of the universe where the only way to get what he wants is to ask for the opposite. Finally, in Variations on the Death of Leon Trotsky, the audience is treated to the hilarious vision of the famous Marxist waxing poetical -- and dying, over and over and over again.

The cast is comprised of 18 of Woodinville High School Theatre Company’s students, including seniors Anna Jackson, Anna Lokken, Austin Glenn, Carmen Katsaros, Jack Preston, Jenna Byers, Josh Locke, Kaley Roughton, Maddie St. Mary, Parker Carson, Savannah Ferguson, and Tony Bowen. Lauren Prescott will be Stage Manager. Due to the virtual aspect of the show, many of the other technical aspects of each one act were handled by the actors and directors themselves. 

The shows were adapted, and designed by Josh Butchart and directed by Josh Butchart, Steve Cooper, Katharina Muller, and Marsha Stueckle with support from Katharina Muller (Producer), Stephanie Penoyer (Props Master), Nathaniel Gibbs (Sound), Marsha Stueckle (Costumes), and the Woodinville Drama Boosters, led by Kelly Locke and Emily Mus.
We hope you can join us in supporting our fabulous Theatre students!

The following plan was developed by District staff in preparation for a return to school and District buildings when it is safe to do so.

We would like to provide an opportunity for students and parents to share ideas regarding these events. Here is a link for WHS Senior Activities Committee - Ideas for 2021:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1N7JjghAO26cinjIaRe4F-4JzlZZ6koi2apuUUpcxaB4/edit.

Please direct any questions you may have to Brenda Conrad at bconrad@nsd.org 

Does Your Student Owe Fines or Fees?

Pursuant to NSD guidelines, notifications are mailed to homes at the end of each quarterly grading period. The fine and outstanding fee ledgers will be sent out to homes the week of February 8th. Fines and fees can always be viewed and paid online 24-hours a day through TouchBase, using your NSD generated log in information that has been given to you. 
Questions? 
Fine/Fee related questions should be directed to Nicki Kongkarat, the ASB Bookkeeper, at nkongkarat@nsd.org.  Username and password questions should be directed to Kim Benedict, the Attendance Secretary, at whsattendance@nsd.org.

Power or Internet Outage - What To Do


We understand that weather incidents may cause a loss of power when students and staff are engaged in distance learning. Our district's Technology, Northshore Learns, and Communications teams collaborated with educators to develop a plan for notifications about power outages, access to service, and how everyone can prepare ahead of time to adjust and continue learning. Please visit our website to learn what to do if your power goes out or if your teacher's power goes out.

Winter Weather

As we enter into the winter season and the potential for inclement weather, it is important to make sure your family’s contact information is current. Families can verify contact information in ParentVUE. Please contact the WHS office today if you need help accessing ParentVUE or updating contact information.

In the event of an emergency, or if winter weather conditions impact the school schedule or affect meal distribution or Books on the Bus, families will receive a phone call, email and/or text message from the District. Information will also be posted on the District website at nsd.org and social media channels. If no information is communicated, there is no change to schedules.

As a reminder, there is detailed information on our District website if your family loses power and/or internet during distance learning due to inclement weather.

Calling on students who can share their music and arts talent with the community during an upcoming virtual event.


Dear Northshore Families,

The Northshore School District Communications Department is seeking students to share their voice through spoken word poetry at our fourth annual State of Our Schools. The virtual event, which will be held in March for leaders within our community and District, will share our successes from the past year, provide exciting updates on new buildings, and share some of the innovation and inspiration taking place throughout Northshore. Including student voice is essential and to that end we invite students to submit spoken word poetry that expresses how the District inspires them and prepares them to turn the page to their next chapter as a student or life beyond Northshore. Submissions are being accepted through Friday, Feb. 12, 2021 from all Northshore students who are interested in performing for the  State of Our Schools virtual event.

A small number of student musicians are also needed for the event to pre-record a performance to be played during the event. If you are a student or student group familiar with playing a set that is classical, jazz or easy listening and you are interested in performing for State of Our Schools, please complete a submission form. These entries will be accepted through Friday, Feb. 12, 2021.

New E-Flyer Platform - Peachjar


We are excited to share that we have moved our e-flyer program to a platform called Peachjar. We receive many requests from local non-profit organizations to distribute program fliers. Peachjar will help facilitate the process of submitting, reviewing, approving and posting e-flyers. With the move to this platform, all e-flyers that are submitted to Peachjar will then be reviewed and approved by District staff to ensure that they meet the District guidelines. We are committed to providing access to all individuals seeking information on our District website. All submitted PDFs must meet accessibility requirements to be approved for distribution. We also encourage organizations to submit flyers in the top five languages spoken in our district.

City of Woodinville Seeks Input on ADA Plan

The City of Woodinville is putting together a long-term plan to improve accessibility and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for our streets, sidewalks, parks, and other public facilities.

  The City is looking to engage the local community throughout this planning process, particularly community members with disabilities. As they put together the plan, one of the topics the City is most interested in hearing about from residents and others who spend time here is where the City should focus its efforts over the next 3-5 years to fix accessibility barriers. Options include pedestrian crosswalks, locations near schools, and more. The City is also interested in hearing about any specific barriers of concern (such as a particular sidewalk curb-ramp on a student’s route to school).

The City has a Mobility for All ADA Transition plan webpage  (https://engagewoodinville.com/mobility-for-all-plan) as well as a survey for families and students attending Woodinville schools who may have an interest in this topic. Completing the survey is the quickest and easiest way to provide feedback on priorities and help with barrier identification. Anyone in the NSD family is more than welcome to reach out to Maia Know, Management Analyst for the City of Woodinville, for a more in-depth discussion at d: (425) 877-2267 | m: (206) 637-2932 |e: maiak@ci.woodinville.wa.us.

 Washington's K-12 Internet   Access Program: Check Eligibility for Free Internet Access 

Having reliable connectivity to the internet is critical for your student’s success during distance learning. The state recognizes this need, and has partnered with Ziply Fiber and Comcast/Xfinity to create Washington’s K–12 Internet Access Program, which gives eligible families free internet access so your student can connect to online learning from home.

This internet access opportunity will provide you with faster, stronger and more reliable connectivity than hotspots or tethering to mobile devices, which will better support your student. If eligible, your free internet access is available through June 30, 2021.
Complete information and the steps to check elegibility, can be found on the Woodinville High School Website.

WHS 2020-21 Clubs

Building Our Falcon Community this School Year!

We are so excited for our students to join all the exciting clubs Woodinville has to offer. Here at WHS, students will find clubs ranging from a wide variety of interests, and WHS ASB has a lot in store for students to meet all these different clubs. 

Below, through students' NSD Google account, they will find a link to a document with flyers from every Woodinville High School club. These flyers will have a brief description of each club as well how to contact said club. Along with the flyers there is also a master list with every club and easily accessible contact information:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1n_xSSB6uaLNthk5EhsGZJdR08yfQEwsbmDP1t2HYW-A/edit?usp=sharing 
The Club Contact List can also be found on the WHS Activities website.
Lastly, in order to join a club students should fill out the Google form here: https://forms.gle/hBuNEvjNv7itgV1V9

This form will act as an intent to join form for all clubs at Woodinville High School. By filling out this form and providing personal information students are allowing club representatives to reach out at a later date with information on how to become a member and with updates on meetings and events. 

We’re excited to build our Falcon community this school year!

Best, Woodinville ASB

Apply for Free & Reduced Price Meals Today!

While Northshore is currently providing free meals, this support is made possible by temporary USDA funding. If this funding changes, the District may be required to charge families based on their current eligibility for meals. Have you applied for free and reduced-price meals this year?

If your family qualified last year, you need to reapply this year to ensure that your student receives free or reduced price meals once the current free meals program ends. It is important to apply today so that your eligibility status doesn’t lapse. If an application was not in process for a returning student by October 14, 2020, the student’s account was automatically transferred to a paid account the next school day. Please know that the number of eligible students for free and reduced price meals connects to the District’s Title I funding, which provides additional support at schools to help students succeed. Additionally, if your family income has decreased, you may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals.

In addition to receiving free or reduced-price meals, your eligibility also provides
  • Reduced fee for Camp Cedar Spring
  • Reduced fee for PSAT and Advanced Placement Testing
  • Reduced fee for sports/athletics
  • Reduced fee for summer school
  • Access to Backpack Program, which provides backpacks and school supplies
  • Access to Operation School Bell, which provides clothes and personal products
To find out if you are eligible and to apply online visit our website.  
School Lunch Information
NSD is offering free meals for all children ages 18 and younger.
Students do not need to be enrolled in the Northshore School District to receive meals. NSD requires that all families wear a mask and maintain physical distancing when picking up their meals. Thank you for helping to keep our drivers and families safe.
